Farmer's Market 5-18-19
Last week we were unloading the truck and trailer wearing our winter coats. This morning it's short sleeves and short pants. It's amazing how quickly things can change. We got a good shower on Thursday night. High temps yesterday and today means the weeds are rejoicing. They got a good drink and now it's on to Hot Yoga for them. They are stretching upward.
Last week was asparagus festival for us. This week's bounty of asparagus is not as bountiful but it will be balanced by a few more things: Lettuce, Swiss Chard and Spinach.
Beth will also have a few Peony/Dutch Iris bouquets.
Also, don't forget the potted herbs and assorted wood products made by Beth's 87 year old father, Bill Newman, from re-purposed wood from the farm.
This Tuesday the polls will be open for you to voice your choice for those who will run for office in the fall. I remember an old saying when I was growing up about voting in Kentucky. "Vote early, vote often." Well, hopefully we won't have any voter fraud but it will be safe for you to "Come early, come often" to market today. You won't be charged with market fraud.
Yeah for democracy!
